Islands represent adventure, mystery, wilderness and escapism. Surrounded by water, they’re somewhere to run away to, to be marooned on, to find a paradise… The British Isles includes some 194 inhabited islands (out of a total of over 6,000), ranging from remote lost worlds to famous and popular holiday spots. And Treasured Islands includes them all, in one enticing package.

This wonderfully comprehensive and inspiring guide starts off with a Best of… section, highlighting the ten best islands for foodies, wildlife, adrenaline-junkies and pure escapism. Then, region by region, the author explores the UK’s most wonderful islands, including:

Shetlands, Fair Isle, Orkneys, Outer Hebrides, Inner Hebrides, Isle of Arran
Lindisfarne, Isle of Man, Walney Island
Anglesey, Pembrokeshire Island
Foulness and Canvey Islands
Isle of Sheppey, Lundy
Isle of Wight, Isles of Scilly, Channel Islands, Islands of Ireland
Tidal Islands (to include Burgh Island, Holy Island and St Michael’s Mount)
Inland Islands (to include Eel Pie, Derwent Isle and Peel Island in the Lake District)
Remote Islands

Illustrated with beautiful colour photography, the text ensures you won’t miss out on must-see attractions, wildlife and natural features, local food specialties, sporting activities, best places to stay and eat, and all-important transport links to and from the mainland, and other nearby islands. For some light relief, there are interesting historical and cultural anecdotes woven through, giving a fascinating insight into the way of life on these sometimes remote settlements.
